Indeed. It suggests this machine may be losing clock ticks. Or
alternatively, truncation of a true clock rate rate somewhere between
99 and 100 is showing up, somewhat misleadingly, as 99.
If nothing else, I think an option to vmstat -i to show interrupt
rates in floating-point rate might be a useful improvment.
